“I believe that fashion is an adventure. One needs to have the curiosity to explore it and the passion to live it. The Nancy Tran woman is bold and adventurous, exquisite and elegant, and effortlessly sensuous. Her spirit is soaring, her reach is far, and her possibilities are endless.”
By the alluring verve and impeccable quality of her seminal collection, it might seem that NANCY TRAN has always been a professional fashion designer. But the truth about this exciting new talent is that until just a few years ago she was a practicing attorney who had been nurturing dreams of designing for as long as she can remember.
Born in Saigon and raised in the United States, Nancy possesses a well-honed understanding of both the modern glamour of Western tastes as well as the serene elegance of Eastern sensibilities. Her interest in fashion, photography, music, and the arts burgeoned at a young age; but she was prompted by her father to pursue a more conventional path toward a secure future. Consequently, she went on to earn both a Juris Doctorate degree and a Master of Business Administration degree, embarked on a successful legal career, and climbed up the ladder at various prestigious law firms, and an investment bank in New York City.
Through it all she never gave up on her true calling. Driven by an inherent creativity, she enrolled in a fashion design associate program at the renowned Fashion Institute of Technology to learn the fundamentals of the métier and fortify her decision to launch an eponymous line. Her business and legal experience proved valuable in putting the business infrastructure in place. Over a year was spent laying down the foundation of the brand – from creating the concept and design to finding highly skilled artisans who could faithfully execute the intricate embroidery, and then crafting the prototypes for production.
Nancy conceived this first collection with deliberate intentions. Setting the essential tone for the brand, this collection offers a fresh interpretation of luxurious fashion relevant to modern women’s lives and serves as an inspiration for women to discover their own beauty, strength, and limitless potential. Equally important, the collection is a testament to Nancy’s personal journey of following her dreams, harnessing the full extent of her creativity and experience, and sharing this joyful expression of sophisticated style with women everywhere. For Nancy Tran this is merely the beginning for what promises to be a global fashion brand.
Nancy is committed to philanthropic causes. She has been a donor to UNICEF for many years and a Director of the Friends of the Disabled, a nonprofit organization founded by her father in 2003.
Nancy Tran resides in New York City with her husband and son.
